Yield:
8 waffles

Ingredients
  • 2 cups cake flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup melted unsalted butter
  • Nonstick vegetable spray for coating waffle iron
  • Confectioners' sugar
  • Fresh berries
  • Whipped cream, recipe follows
  • Ice cream, optional
  • Whipped Cream:
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon confectioner' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon maraschino liqueur or Kirsch (for a non-alcoholic substitution, use 1 teaspoon vanilla extract)
Directions
  • Preheat a waffle iron. In a large bowl, stir together the dry ingredients. Make a well in the center and add the buttermilk, milk, eggs, and melted butter. Mix together just until combined (DON'T OVERMIX THE BATTER!). The batter should look slightly lumpy.

  • Spray the waffle iron with the nonstick vegetable spray. Pour 1/2 cup of the batter or the amount recommended by the waffle-iron maker onto the waffle iron; bake as directed by the manufacturer.

  • Whipped Cream: In a chilled bowl, whip the cream until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Add the sugar and maraschino. Whip to soft, fluffy peaks, about 2 minutes.

  • Dust finished waffles with confectioners' sugar and top with fresh berries, whipped cream, or ice cream, if desired. Serve hot off the griddle.
